Spring has Sprung in Sedona, AZ - 02/21/08 01:11 PM
Our busy buyer seasons for Sedona Real Estate are Spring and Fall. Although most of the country wouldn't call this spring - the weather is nice and it's feeling like spring (especially when you see the number of visitors in town right now!). Buyer activity has picked up dramatically with many people looking at the 400+ homes currently available in Sedona. There are so many deals to be had through short sale, stressed sale, foreclosure that it's bringing the average sale price down and starting to affect the sellers that aren't stressed to sell. Bottom line - it's a great time (0 comments)
Sedona Propterties - February 2008 update - 02/11/08 11:10 AM
Well, our busy season for the Sedona Real Estate market is due to start in a few days. Generally we're supposed to be slow during the first 6 weeks of the year, but this year has changed. I'm guessing that the huge number of properties on market and low prices have been driving the current Sedona Real Estate Market. There are deals in every price category and buyers have kicked the year off snatching up the best deals in the area. If you're looking to buy in Sedona, I don't think you'll find a much better time to buy. Inventory is (0 comments)
Super Bowl effects - 02/05/08 01:19 PM
Well... I guess I was right. The Super Bowl last Sunday brought thousands of tourists through the Phoenix area from cold weather locales. Any trip to Phoenix isn't complete unless you take the 90 minute drive up to Sedona (so everyone says...) I predicted a few weeks back that we'd see some heavy activity during that time and make our usually slow January Sedona Real Estate market start to pop. It looks like I was right - activity in pending sales is approx 3-4 times the activity level from January. I put 2 properties into escrow over the weekend - and (0 comments)
Search Engine Placement - 02/01/08 01:44 PM
I've been working with my webmaster to increase organic search results when searching the web. I'm sure that thousands of others in this network realize this - but I'm learning quickly that each word counts on your homepage. Other tidbits I learned through GoDaddy: 1) Reserve your domain name for as long as possible (10 years)- Google will place you higher if you look permanent to them... 2) Build as many link partnerships as possible - from your home page - it counts more 3) The 5% rule is key when using keywords. It's like playing verbal sudoku - pick what you want to (3 comments)
